Breathe Out ... 9.0%

Got an interview coming next week, but I have a message for you ‘til then …

Breathe Out

Right now
Whatever you are holding onto …
Breathe out
And let it go …

Free yourself
From your past
From your mistakes
From your worries
From those causing adverse effects in your life

Never be afraid
Never doubt your strength
The ability …
To remove yourself from an environment
To move upward and onward
To pick yourself up despite how far you have fallen …

Choose to be strong
Choose to be a light

Hold only onto things that bring you joy
Seek happiness
Remain true to yourself
Be mindful of your health
Don’t get lost into chasing a monetary idea of wealth

Free yourself and just be
Always be the best you that you can be …

So, how did we get here?

Well, it's Sunday morning and I'm sitting on a couch in Upper Manhattan wondering what the day will bring forth.  I'm swiping through Instagram stories, sipping on a glass of room temperature water, and I see that a model I've followed since 2014 is coming to New York.  Her story reads, " any photographers or artists in the area, I'd love to collab, send me a DM " ...

I'm aware that she has over 600,000 followers and her inbox might be completely overloaded, but I replied anyway: " Hey, I'm actually here visiting friends and family from Atlanta - I'd love to do a quick 5 to 10-minute interview about your journey. "

Fifteen minutes later, I checked my phone and see this message, " Ok, let's do it! - I arrive Sunday late-afternoon so let's touch base then! "

After spending nearly an entire day together - honestly - she is one of the most charismatic, genuine, and kind souls I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

See for yourself.

Thank you, Stefania - for being open to meeting with me and discussing a number of topics both on and off camera.  I truly appreciated our dialogue.

Meet-Up: #Samoht ... 8.8%

Yo'!

A little back story, I had the pleasure of interviewing Samoht via FaceTime over a year ago after discovering him on Instagram - if you want, you can view that interview HERE.

Simply put, I knew the homie had talent after hearing a few of his songs on Soundcloud, but speaking to him allowed me to get an idea of his character and a little insight on who he is as an artist.  We planned to stay in touch since then and have maintained a banter consisting of jokes, encouragement, music, and other creative dopeness.

When it comes to artists that we discover - as fans of the music - you never know when the opportunity will present itself to actually meet them in person.

It is such a great feeling to have one of your favorite artists become one of your friends.

I'm truly grateful for these moments and experiences.

Here's a little of what we discussed while I was visiting in New York, check it out below:

As some of you may know, I recently spent some time in New York seeing friends and family.  I was itching for a break, hoping to feel inspired and get the creative juices flowing again.

This is one of three interviews I did while visiting - I could feel myself trying to get reacquainted with being in front of a camera again.  For those of you who may not know, I used a GoPro to film all of my past interviews and recently upgraded my equipment in hopes to motivate myself and improve my content.

It felt so great to be back in a city I had not stepped foot in since I was probably 17 years old.  My experiences were incredible and I would not change anything about it for the world.  Things have a way of working themselves out when we least expect it and I could not be happier with how it turned out in the end.

First video back in a minute and It was entirely spurred of the moment.  Who knew that looking for a specific tattoo parlor would lead to my first video.

Consortium is a league of its own - I was immediately drawn to the look and feel of the place.  I mean, when you walk into a place - you see a bar cart with Makers Mark and Corona - dope tunes playing on SONOS wired throughout the place - you just gotta' love it!  The owner, Sam Payrovi, was nice enough to chat with me about the store and their products. I told him a little about what I was trying to do here while in the city creativity-wise and he was all for filming a few shots for my video.

So, enjoy as there are more videos to come and check out today's podcast episode as well, HERE!

Thank you, Sam! I really appreciated your time and learning what the #CTSM in Consortium really means!

Yashar is really getting into a rhythm to be sure he is heard on these sound waves.  

Very down to Earth, hard-working, and truly believes in his ability to create.  He aspires to inspire others through his songwriting in a way that fully captures the listener and keeps them engaged with his charisma.

I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live at the Masquerade here in Atlanta back in mid-February and really appreciated his energy.  You could tell he put a lot of work into his presentation - connecting with the audience and overall stage presence - using his personality to keep the vibes fresh in between songs. I truly believe he will only continue to get better with time.

Watch the interview below - share and comment your thoughts!
